The We Are FSTVL team will be pulling out all the stops with another heavyweight line up befitting any serious international dance music event. 16 stages will play host to over 200 of the world’s leading dance music stars, with not one but two main stages and 20 event brand partners, including many of this year’s favourites and more.
Tickets were priced at £149 for the weekend (SOLD OUT), or £77 for a day ticket (Saturday SOLD OUT, Sunday only).
We Are FSTVL will be placing a huge emphasis on production to create an unrivalled festival experience, never before applied to the UK dance festival market. Taking place over a sprawling 122 acre former WW1 airfield in Upminster, Essex, 20 minute train journey from Central London.
Production will be taken up a level or three with a brand new set of stylised arenas and structures. Expect to hear more about The Tower of Light, FSTVL Avenue, Confetti Island, The Tunnel and the Pyramids over the coming months.
Important infrastructure additions will also be made, with extended bars, toilets, car parking, entrance lanes and a vast transport hub being built to house a brand new national coach service, dedicated free bus to local towns as well more trains & tubes running later to aid site egress.
Founder and Creative Director Nikki Gordon is formerly from the team behind the TDK Cross Central, The Cross, The Key and the recent Luciano Cadenza Vagabundos show which took place earlier this year.
This event is for over 18s only.
There will be more information here when available.
